Background Orcs


With a sound that has been dubbed “Deep Pocket Immersive Groove”, Background Orcs formed with the goal of redefining the jam band sound and forging a new path for what is possible in the live music setting. The four musicians met their freshman year of college and from the moment they got together to jam in an empty classroom several years ago, none of them could deny there was something special about this particular outfit. All focused on other projects however, it would take a while before they decided to bring their unique brand of improv to the venue and festival circuit.

With experienced and academic backgrounds in music, the four members of Background Orcs combine elements of many musical styles from around the globe to create an atmosphere of good vibes and psychedelic-trance for listeners. In 2012, Background Orcs embarked on their first summer run, making waves throughout the Northeast Region. The group made appearances in some of the area’s top venues and festivals such as The Spot Underground (RI), Tammany Hall (MA), Precinct (MA), Evolvefest (NJ), Hempstock (ME), and the Official After Party for Zappa Plays Zappa (NH). Be on the lookout for Massachusetts’ newest groove machine as they continue to play out to ever-growing audiences.
